Dundee Rep in collaboration with Eden Court Highlands presents the filmed reimagining of Islander, the award-winning two-hander folk theatre musical conceived and directed by Amy Draper with music and lyrics by St Andrews-born writer and composer Finn Anderson and book by Stewart Melton. This reimagined version is filmed both on location and on the stage of Dundee Rep for cinema exhibition and on-demand viewing. It will premiere on 26 August at a red-carpet event at Eden Court in Inverness before becoming available to stream on Rep Studios. Originally presented as part of Made in Scotland 2019 showcase at Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it was Winner of Musical Theatre Review's Best Musical Award, this environmental show continued its success with an off-West End run and a BBC Radio 4 adaptation. The Rep Studios reimagining of Islander for film stays true to the show's beautiful folktale storytelling and score. The film, captured by award-winning Mallard Productions was directed by Amy Draper with lighting design by Simon Wilkinson, produced by Helen Milne. Premiering at a red-carpet event at Eden Court's Cinema at 7pm on 26 August 2021, followed by cinema screenings at Eden Court between 27 August and 2 September 2021.
